House Painting in Nashville: Nothing’s More Expensive Than a Cheap Paint Job!

calander Jul 24 , 2019 user-icon Nash Painting

When it comes to choosing a painting company, the tendency is to be too heavily focused on price. We get and respect that – we’re family people too who live with budgets and income considerations. Life isn’t cheap!

What we DO like to share is a reminder to not just focus on cost, but value. And sometimes a greater value will actually decrease your costs over time.

Let’s take a closer look at why.

How Long Will Your Paint Job Last in Nashville?

Most local painters offer a 2-3 year paint job, and this includes little-to-no surface preparation. I’d consider this to be just a cosmetic repaint, honestly, especially given that short life expectancy.

Now, the benefit to this kind of work is that the price tag is undeniably lower. But you also get a lot less in the process…

We typically cost 2-3x as much as painting companies that are price model-driven. How’s that for transparency? 🙂

Our exterior paint jobs DO, however, come with an almost unheard of 10-year warranty. So, our work costs 2-3x as much, but lasts 4-5x longer. If you do the math, that means that our value is greater, and the actual cost over the span of 10 years is substantially lower.

We also are fully committed to our customers and standards. So committed, in fact, that we don’t require a deposit, and we have never received a genuine negative review.

What Do You Risk with a Cheap Paint Job?

Food for thought!

  • Floor protection (are you okay with drips and dribbles?)

  • Low quality paint

  • Poor quality control

  • Inconsistent procedures and systems

  • Unfriendly or unhelpful painters

  • Low-quality finishes left by low-quality brushes and rollers

  • Sheen flashing

  • Poor communication

  • Bullying tactics rather than professional courtesy and accountability

Often times paint companies with working owners also have not allocated enough money in their budget to cover any issues that may arise during the project. This isn’t intentional in most cases, but rather is an oversight as they pay the company what is needed to stay in business. If the owner is directly losing his income when things go wrong, they may be less likely to do the right thing.

There is a tremendous benefit to investing in an established painter who is fully invested in their community, their clients, and their trade. A painting company like Nash Painting will always put your needs first, doing whatever it takes to ensure that you are fully satisfied.
